Ran into some trouble his 2nd inning of work. They were sitting on his 2 seamer and he was pumping strikes. Nothing but ground ball hits against him.

Looked ready to go IMO.

Carlos Martinez (shoulder) allowed a run on four singles and a hit-by-pitch in a two-inning appearance Wednesday afternoon at Double-A Springfield.

It wasn't the most successful outing, but he needed only 20 pitches to record six outs, and 14 of those pitches were strikes. Martinez is expected to join the Cardinals in a bullpen role this weekend, after missing the first seven weeks of the 2019 regular season with a right shoulder issue. He recently expressed hope that the Cards will return him to a starting role sometime after the All-Star break.

Jonny Venters released by Braves. Did he go the route of Siegrist and all of a sudden start sucking? He was good not that long ago..

The last time he was actually good was 2012. Missed 6 entire seasons with arm injuries.

Jonny Venters sounds like the name of an early rock-and-roller from the 50's.
